We’re getting more accustomed to the puppy (and he to us). The kids have been more hands on which is helping immensely because I was getting fried trying to get work done and train and take him out. Unfortunately he’s had an ongoing UTI, but at least he thinks the meds are treats! Thank goodness!
Potty training is going well and he sleeps in the crate every night without issue. Tomorrow he’s going to be neutered (spade?) and so ‘they’ say he will calm down a bit afterwards. He’s a bit ball of love for the most part and I’ve been teaching him tricks. But I really have to teach him other things that are more important like leave it, how to walk properly on a leash without pulling and gain some control over those issues. He needs to go to puppy school, but I haven’t found one that I can get him into at the moment. I was thinking of having a private trainer come just to work with me because he seems to respond better to the deep male voices of my sons. One thing at a time.
But it’s getting better which is good. However, on another note, I’m having issues with fainting. I fell a few weeks ago (fainted) and broke my nose in 2 places. Oh the blood when that happens! It was awful. Since then I’ve fainted in the same way a few times which isn’t good. So I’ve got some dr appointments lined up to figure out what the heck is going on. It’s a bit scary because I keep hurting myself when I fall. Monday I fell and cut up one knee and the other one is inflamed and I can only hobble on it. It’s better today, but not quite right. So the kids have had to step up and take the dog out more because I can’t run the risk of fainting with a puppy in the yard. I am not going to be taking him on walks anytime soon by myself either. The last faint I was with my son and the puppy so that was good because otherwise who knows what would have happened.
So that’s why it’s been quiet here at Chez Leeds. I just haven’t felt up to writing, but I thought I should get back on and check in. I hope you’re all doing great. I’ll start my reader up and catch up on all of you. In the meantime, note the St. Patrick’s Day bandana on the pup. He just came back from the groomer. 🙂
